Dear Girl Scout Gold Award Mentor Committee Volunteer,
The Girl Scout Gold Award is the highest award that a Girl Scout can earn and requires hard work and the willingness of a girl to challenge herself to take on significant responsibilities. To earn this award expresses a girl’s special commitment to herself, her community, her work, and her future. Earning the Girl Scout Gold Award symbolizes outstanding accomplishments in the areas of leadership, career planning, community service, and personal development. A Girl Scout Gold Award project should involve leadership, goal setting, decision making, networking, planning, enlisting the help of others, and more, resulting in a leadership project that will help others by meeting an expressed need in her community outside of the Girl Scout community.
The Girl Scout Gold Award Mentor Committee plays an important role in supporting a girl’s path to earning the Girl Scout Gold Award. On the committee, your role is as mentor and coach. You will provide support for girls embarking on the rigorous path towards earning this prestigious award through the interview and approval process, project implementation, and recognition.
Without adults playing many pivotal roles, Girls Scouting could not happen. As a volunteer on the committee, you will be working directly with girls. We are committed to the safety of the girls under our protection. We request that all adult volunteers complete a Volunteer Application and register as an adult member of the Girl Scouts of the USA. Registering as an adult member showers your acceptance of the organization’s principles and beliefs.
